What are the causes of finger joint pain?

There are many causes of finger joint pain, and above we have summarized three main categories of common causes.
The first category is localized injury or infection, which is relatively easy to understand.
The second category is rheumatic diseases, which are systemic diseases that can manifest as finger joint pain in the hand because of the involvement of some structures of the joint, such as synovial membranes, capsular ligaments, and articular cartilage, etc. These diseases require screening of other joints and organ systems for abnormalities. Common diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis, gout and osteoarthritis.
The third category is diseases that do not directly involve the finger joints, which commonly include flexor tendon tenosynovitis, carpal tunnel syndrome, elbow tunnel syndrome, and cervical spondylosis. Of course, there are other less common causes that cannot be listed.
